Redmond requires more lanes on roads | Letter

I would like to express my disapproval of the recent changes in infrastructure. Over the course of the last few months, the main roads through Redmond have been changed from single-way roads to two-way roads. Though initially this may seem like an amazing idea because traffic should be able to flow more easily through Redmond, it has had the opposite effect. On Redmond Way, they were required to add a turn lane down the middle, decreasing the number of total lanes by two. With the overall increase in population within Redmond, we require more lanes, not less. I am currently unaware of any way to increase the lanes through the city. The least we could do is keep the number of lanes stagnant.
